The merits of corriboard
Corriboard: what is corriboard may you ask? In a nutshell, it is a plastic version of corrugated cardboard. Corrugated plastic. It is made of recyclable polypropylene which makes the material good for one time use. It also comes under a few other trade names; for example: Polyflute, Coroplast, FlutePlast, IntePro, Proplex, Correx, Twinplast, Corriflute or Corflute.
In the last decade, corrugated plastic has gained popularity as an alternative to wood and cardboard. Estate agencies have used corriboard as a lightweight alternative to wooden board for their signage. Compared with the wooden signs of old, colour consistency is greater: pigments are waterproof and chemical proof making corrugated plastic suitable for outdoor use.
Furthermore, it is also a good material for shop signs. For lettering it comes into its own, due to its flexibility. Likewise with raised panelling and engraved panels.
Corriboard is also suitable for indoor use. Instead of using hard plastic, safety signs (for example, A-board warning signs) can be made with that material. Its strength as well as flexibility makes it a good all-round material. Not only for packaging but also temporary signage, placards, freestanding signs and pitchside advertising boards.
Why Sign FX have explored corriboard?
We at Sign FX swear by this form of corrugated plastic, not only for the reasons we have stated above. The possibilities for differing colours and shapes are endless. It is also a good fit for digital printing techniques. Our corrugated plastic signs come in 6 mm and 10 mm thicknesses.
